Shailene Woodley Was Just Released From Jail After Live Streaming Her Arrest

Hollywood royalty has an incredible platform to bring awareness to any political or social issue, but far too often, celebrities are all talk and no action. 

That, however, cannot be said of Divergent star and Secret Life Of The American Teenager alum Shailene Woodley, who has had a very busy 24 hours. 

On Monday afternoon, thousands (which quickly turned into millions) watched on Facebook Live as actress Shailene Woodley was arrested for trespassing while protesting the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. 

The 1,168 mile-long pipeline, which is intended to transport oil through Iowa, Illinois, and the Dakotas, has been the subject of intense debate and been fiercely opposed by environmentalists and Native Americans, as the project has the potential to damage the nearby sacred Sioux burial grounds and contaminate the Standing Rock Reservation’s water supply. Woodley has been protesting the pipeline publicly for months.

As she was being handcuffed, the actress continued to speak to the camera.

“I was just walking to my RV so we can go back to camp peacefully and they grabbed me by my jacket and they had giant guns and zip ties and they are not letting me go,” she said. 

Then a police officer explained she was being arrested for criminal trespassing.

“Why am I being arrested and no one else is? I’m being arrested because I was trespassing with everyone else. As soon as you guys asked me to leave I left, I was down there with everyone else,” she said. “I don’t know what is going on. It’s because I am well known. It’s because I have 40,000 people watching. We were going to our vehicle and they were waiting for me with big guns and a big truck.”

Fellow protestors continued to film her arrest until an officer instructed them to move back. 

Following the Divergent star’s arrest, she received an outpouring of support from fellow celebrities. 

Anonymous also voiced their support for the actress. 

Hours after her arrest, Woodley was released from North Dakota’s Morton County Jail.

Ultimately, she was charged with criminal trespassing and engaging in a riot. She paid a $ 500 fine and will be expected to appear in court on October 24th.

“She appreciates the outpouring of support, not only for her, but more importantly, for the continued fight against the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline,” a rep for Woodley told People.

She’s continuing to receive tons of support from Twitter for her activism — and, allegedly, helping out her fellow protestors who were arrested. 

Looks like Shailene’s a badass even outside of Hollywood. 

We’ll be keeping a close eye on her Twitter to see what she has to say about her arrest.

Archaeologists Just Unearthed A Skeleton Mosaic Telling People To 'Enjoy Your Life'

Hey, you wanna see the chillest skeleton of all time just kicking back and relaxing?

sciencealert

That’s what archaeologists just dug up when they were excavating a site on the Turkish-Syrian border. The mosaic dates back 2,400 years, but if the inscription on this picture of our laid-back, boney bro proves anything, it’s that human beings haven’t changed.

Because it translates to “Be cheerful, enjoy your life”. The artwork was discovered in what is believed to be the affluent Greek-Roman city of Antiocheia.


sciencealert

In the photo there’s two other figures, one, dark-skinned, and unfortunately eroded by time. The other, white and rocking a toga, reaching for a crescent.

Demet Kara, an archaeologist who helped discover the amazing mosaic, said in an interview with the Hurriyet Daily News said that the three figures represent what upper-echelon Roman peeps valued above all: bathing and eating.

“In the middle scene, there is a sundial and a young clothed man running towards it with a bare-headed butler behind. The sundial is between 9pm and 10pm – 9pm is the bath time in the Roman period. He has to arrive at supper at 10pm. Unless he can, it is not well received. There is writing on the scene that reads he is late for supper and writing about time on the other.

In the last scene, there is a reckless skeleton with a drinking pot in his hand along with bread and a wine pot. The writing on it reads ‘Be cheerful and live your life.'”

It turns out that long before we were using skeletons as memes, the ancient Romans were too – they thought skellies were hilarious.


sciencealert

Like this booze-loving skeleton with two jugs of wine who’s ready to party to death.

Or this skeleton laying down next to his scythe seductively with the phrase, “Know thy self” inscribed beneath him.


sciencealert

All right, that seems a little more creepy than anything, but seriously, that sexy skeleton pose is kinda hilarious in a macabre way.

Kara says she’s still studying the site’s findings with her team but that they’ll be publishing their findings soon. Hopefully it’ll be an awesome collection of ancient party examples. Oh, and more skeleton memes. (h/t sciencealert)

15 Women Shared What They Just Don't Get About Their Significant Others

Entering into a relationship means learning to accept all kinds of quirks about your partner— quirks you didn’t necessarily know about during the honeymoon phase or the first couple dates where they pretended to like your T.V. shows and said that they talk to their mom on the phone every Wednesday. 

And then there are the weird habits that we’ll never get. But that’s love, we suppose. 

Women took to Whisper to vent about what they’ll never understand about their significant others. You’ll probably be able to relate:

Lady Gaga Just Posted The Saddest Instagram About Her Breakup With Taylor Kinney

To add to the depressing celebrity drama of the week, Lady Gaga proved that we’re all going to die alone— because if she can’t make love work, none of us can. 

For those of you who live under a rock and proudly proclaim that you don’t follow any celebrities, Gaga and fiancé Taylor Kinney have gone their separate ways. The two met back in 2011 on the music video set of Gaga’s song “You & I” (Kinney played the love interest, obviously) and got engaged on Valentine’s Day of 2016. 

The trailblazer in meat-themed fashion didn’t say much about the breakup publicly until now. Grab the tissues. 

She posted this photo of the couple to Instagram with a tear jerker of a caption.

Taylor and I have always believed we are soulmates.

Just like all couples we have ups and downs, and we have been taking a break.

We are both ambitious artists, hoping to work through long-distance and complicated schedules to continue the simple love we have always shared.

Please root us on. We’re just like everybody else and we really love each other.

Remember when they were happy??

Does true love even exist?

According to the ever-reliable rumor mill, the two broke up in early July and Gaga hasn’t been wearing her ring. 

…We’ll just be here with a gallon of Ben & Jerry’s.

Martha Stewart Just Threw All Of The Shade At Kim K's BFF Jonathan Cheban

Maybe it’s because of her stint in federal prison, but we always had a feeling Martha Stewart could take a b*tch down. She just has that look in her eye. Anyway, she just confirmed our suspicions with The Tweet To End All Tweets. It all happened on the Daily Mail‘s MailOnline yacht in Cannes. Stewart (and presumably, a lot of other famous people) were attending the publication’s ‘Seriously Popular’ party. The real celebrities, it seems, were joined by Kim Kardashian’s official ass kisser best friend and fame whore, Jonathan Cheban. And clearly, Martha is above being at a party with the most inconsequential character in reality TV history. 

The drama started when Cheban posted this photo to his Snap story, calling out Martha’s table manners.

In fairness, we definitely read that in one of her books or blogs, right?

Little did he know, the domestic goddess was tweeting something very important. 

“He says he is well known.” Holy sh*t, Martha. We totally agree, of course, but we didn’t know that the Queen herself was capable of this level of Twitter feuding. And she probably single handedly destroyed his career with that one. 

Twitter was very amused by the shade and totally had her back.

Then she followed up with this gem:

“Who knew?” So sassy, Martha. 

And we should probably address the greatest response to all this shade. 

Very true. 

Apparently it was all in good fun, because Jonathan tweeted a picture of them hanging out. 

We’re a little skeptical, though. 

And, as one Twitter user reminded us:

He can probably handle it. He’s been known to throw some shade as well. 

…He kind of deserves the infamy. Props, Martha.

Demi Lovato Just Rage Quit Twitter And Instagram Because Of All The Haters

You might remember Demi Lovato for the unspeakable act of locking her sister, Poot, in a basement and keeping her out of public’s eye for years.

She’s also an incredibly talented singer, to boot, but people can’t seem to help but roast her on social media for the whole Poot fiasco, among other things.

Never one to back down from a good internet fight, Demi fought back in the best way possible: by backing down from an internet fight.

The pop singer has decided to officially call it quits on Instagram and Twitter.

In an effort to shield herself from the negativity of people’s comments on Instagram and Twitter, Lovato has decided to exclusively broadcast her happenings to her fans on Snapchat for a more one-way star-to-fan experience.

Then she got all existential.

Asking deep questions about her own awesomeness. Just why do we hate her so much?

Shame on us.

For all of her Insta and Twitter hating, Demi hasn’t deleted her accounts yet. Maybe she’s just trying to take a break in case she wants to go back to the platforms.

People think the post that broke the camel’s back was this controversial Insta photo and comment Lovato posted, suggesting Ariana Grande was better than Mariah Carey.

“Mariah is a legend and is so talented but constantly disses people. It’s nasty the way she treats Jennifer [Lopez]. Ari did nothing wrong.”

Apparently Mariah’s fans didn’t take too kindly to Lovato’s sacrilege and started hounding her for her anti-Carey comments.

Lovato doesn’t seem too phased by the hate. Here she is on Snapchat, appearing to be doing just fine without all of us tweeting at her and leaving comments on her Instagram.

But seriously, Demi, where’s Poot?
